KLAMATH FALLS, Ore.- In time for National Yearbook Week, a Klamath Falls teenager is getting national recognition for her work on her school’s yearbook!

Klamath Union High School Senior Bailyn Amos was nominated by her teacher and her classmates for her dedication to the yearbook. When she started the effort she didn’t have any experience with yearbook at all.

With the pandemic pushing back the start of so many school events, and the work on the yearbook itself, it created an uphill battle.

“Our sport seasons, everything began late. So we had to scramble to put it all together,” said Daniel Sterns, her media design teacher.

“It’s shown me that I can do a lot more than I thought before,” Bailyn said, adding that the nomination came as a total surprise.

Mister Sterns says Bailyn is now considering a career as a teacher because of her ambition and talent with the yearbook.

The national contest was hosted by yearbook company “Treering” who awarded the school a $100 dollar gift card and ten free yearbooks after Bailyn’s win.

The high school winners are as follows:

  • 1st place: Klamath Union High School –  Klamath Falls, Oregon
  • 2nd place: Shalhevet Girls High School – Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada
  • 3rd place: Niles McKinley High School – Niles, Ohio
